Black, White, and Gold Foil Destination Wedding Invitations

Destination weddings are so romantic, don’t you think? Especially when said destination involves an island in Greece! The ladies of Smitten on Paper created these elegant destination wedding invitations for a destination wedding on the island of Kea. I LOVE the combination of classic black and white with gold foil! Not to mention that beautiful illustrated wreath!

From Amy and the Smitten on Paper teamThe bride and groom wanted their wedding invitations and accessory pieces to reflect the simplicity and beauty of their designation wedding in Kea, Greece. We designed a simple wreath that looks stunning when gold foil stamped and offers a subtle nod to the wedding location. The invitations were letterpress printed and foil stamped on a double thick cotton paper making them feel very elegant, but not too feminine. A black tag with gold foil was the perfect way to tie everything together.

We also designed a welcome packet for guests once they arrived in Greece with fun touches – like how to speak a few key phrases and a map of the area. This was a great project to work on and we are so happy the final pieces captured the natural beauty and classic elegance of the Greek coast.

Gold Foil and Lace Wedding Invitations

Happy Monday everyone! Designer Lauren Chism shared these beautiful gold foil and lace wedding invitations here a couple of years ago – and today she’s here to share a slightly more traditional spin on that combination! The invitations feature gold foil text surrounded by a subtle lace-inspired letterpress blind impression pattern, and a beautiful gold floral envelope liner. So classically beautiful!

From LaurenGold foil is definitely having a moment right now… and you would think if you’ve seen one gold foil and lace wedding invitation, you’ve seen them all, but these invitations might prove you wrong!

Brittany and her mom were drawn to Carley and John’s wedding invitations but were looking for something a little more traditional with lace accents instead of the lace taking up the whole invitation background. I played with a lot of lace arrangements before we landed on this classic look and I love how timeless and elegant this suite is.

The insert and RSVP card were also printed in gold foil, with the insert featuring the lace again, that coordinated, but wasn’t exactly the same. We paired them with ivory envelopes and Brittany picked this gold floral paper from Paper Source for the liners, which she ordered and I cut down to fit her envelopes. I love how two invitations with the same printing method and general ‘style’ can be so different!

Colorful and Gold Foil Brush Lettered Wedding Invitations

This is such a great way to combine color and gold foil! Alex from Goodheart Design created these brush lettered wedding invitations for a couple married at Disneyland in California. With each piece printed in a different color and featuring Alex’s signature lettering, this wedding invitation suite has such a fun and whimsical vibe!

From AlexI had so much dun designing for this couple! They were married at Disneyland in the Rosecourt Garden, so they wanted something fun and whimsical. Usually people want their wedding invitation suite to be all one color to keep it simple and cohesive, but this couple wanted to jazz it up a little bit and have each piece printed a different color.

The main invitation is gold foil and the other two pieces are each one color letterpress. They also strayed away from the typical rsvp card and did a fun postcard, which gives the invitations a little more of a casual vibe.

Ginny + Andrew’s Elegant Old World Wedding Invitations

Wow. Just wow. These elegant wedding invitations from Lily of Lavender and Mint are just stunning! With matte gold foil and classic black letterpress, calligraphy by Signora e Mare, and deckled edge paper, these invitations evoke an Old World feel and the natural beauty of northern California. I can’t stop staring at all the beautiful details in this wedding invitation suite!

From LilyThis wedding suite, and the successive day-of stationery, is without a doubt my all-time favorite project. The bride, Ginny, is the type of client every designer dreams of; an effortlessly stylish woman with a love and appreciation for the creative process. She is herself a floral designer and was an absolute pleasure to collaborate with. We spent months looking at inspiration in fashion, interiors, and florals to refine the creative direction before we even began to design.

The wedding was in Carmel, California and she wanted to harness the natural beauty of northern California and evoke the feeling of being in that environment. She wore a stunning bohemian inspired Jenny Packham dress and we drew on that aesthetic to design a suite that was old world with the unrefined organic feeling that reminded her of California.

We collaborated with Katie from Signora e Mare for her beautiful calligraphy and chose to print on Arturo Fine Stationery. The illustration bled off the page, not something I would typically do with a deckled edge stock, however this subtle accent added to the natural quality of the invitation. We combined matte gold foil stamping and black letterpress for the printing and added a 3” French Blue Dupioni silk ribbon and 5/8” raw velvet rose ribbon to secure the invitation.

Both colors were a nod to what would be used as accent colors on the day of. The final touch was a custom antique gold wax seal with the couple’s monogram. The suite was comprised of an invitation, reply card, details card, reception card and both an inner and outer envelope. Each piece was printed with either a combination of black letterpress and matte gold foil or with a single print process – either letterpress or foil stamping. The result was a full suite that told a story. Erich McVey captured the essence of the suite beautifully and I am so thrilled to share his photos with you here!
